It’s been months since I posted anything here, and people have started to worry.
I apologize for not updating you, my reader, about my condition, but I am still alive and kicking and living a generally happy and awesome life.
In my normal over-sharing fashion, I’ll just let you know what has been happening for me.
When I last posted in September, I was going through some pretty scary stuff. Since then, I still have no certain answer as to my health issues, but I never had to get the spinal surgery that I was worried about and the current theory is that my condition is caused by some sort of autoimmune disorder so I started taking immunosuppressants around Thanksgiving.
They appeared to be helping and I was seeing some relief but I have felt pretty much like I had a low-grade cold ever since then. A couple of weeks ago, I started to have a lot of pain in one of the teeth that was damaged when I broke my jaw a couple of years ago and eventually saw a dentist to determined that I had an infection and that I needed a root canal. After a week and half or so of some of the worst pain I’ve endured, I got the root canal and felt much better. However, the infection activated my immune system and started to cause my legs to feel numb again. I’ve been on antibiotics since the root canal and I do think that I’m getting better again, but I’m still not quite up to my normal awesome self.
I have been able to go to work most days and even get out to BaGG most weeks, so my life is still pretty amazing, but I expect that I will feel much better once this infection is cleared and I can take the immunosuppressants again.
I apologize for neglecting my blog and you, my readers, but my life remains awesome and I will try to do better with posting now.
Thank you for all of the well wishes and concern.
